news/washington post poll shows an absolute dead-heat. 48%. still, in those battleground states, a small but steady lead for president obama and it's in the battlegrounds especially those midwestern states of iowa, wisconsin and ohio, where the candidates are making their closing arguments. >> the american auto industry is back on top. osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress. but, we are here today because we know we got more work to do. >> the question in this election is this, do you want to stay on the course that we are on or do you want real change? because we represent real change. >>> with that, let's hear from the campaign's top strategists. david plouffe and ed gillespie. david, let me begin with you. i know that you have been steadily confident throughout this campaign. but you saw our abc news/washington post poll still absolutely deadlocked. 48-48. how can you remain so confident? >> well, george, we have always known that this was going to be a very close race. but it is going to be decided in the battle ground states. we have an important lead in those
poll has the race at 48%. the abc washington post tracking poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing by one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win tis election by a sizable margin, if you consider a sizable margin to be two or 3 percent, perhaps, regardless of what these polls are saying today. one group or demographic,like independent voters, could swing the election in the waning hours of the campaign. and what should worry the obama campaign with their race so tight that you can hear is quilt is not the unraveling cover-up on been gauzy or a bust response to a major east coast hurricane. what should worry the obama campaign is that this race is all about the economy, his record, and responsibility where the unemployment rate and in this economic recovery now stand. voters simply trust governor romney more on this most important issue. let's reveal -- that is revealed in poll after poll. a new "washington post" poll shows governor
for the obama campaign, who is in our washington studio and, david, welcome back to fox news sunday. >> thanks, chris, good to be with you. >> chris: before we get to the campn, i want to ask you about libya. here is what the president promised, and here's what he has actually done. >> president barack obama: every piece of information that we get, as we got it, we laid it out for the american people. >> chris: and, that was the president, returning from a campaign trip, and not answering a question about benghazi, david, simple question: did the president make a calculated decision, to run out the clock, until the leck and not answer questions, about libya? >> no. >> chris: so, wh hasn't he answered questions about his personal involvement in libya? >> the president has, from the beginning, chris and we've talked you about it before, of course, the president has said, we want to get to the bottom of it and share it with the american people and get it right and there are a couple of distinguished americans, ambassador pickering and admiral mullen, the former head of the joint chiefs of staff w
the time. the spirit of it is go out to the polls. the "washington post" has a pretty strong assessment of why this is so in some ways despicable on the national stage. the romney campaign thinks so little of the american voter at this point. that we don't need the specifics, that you can get away with these small attacks to obfuscate the larger message which is we don't know what romney is about, he hasn't taken questions from reporters and this is your closing argument? >> they've not only taken out an ad but they have repeated this almost half a dozen times today on the stump. what do you make of it? is this really a focal point now for the romney campaign and their closing argument of the american people? >> i don't think it's so much a focal point but a reemphasis, just sort of making the point as you saw in the rest of the clip there, the contrast, the president wants to talk about your vote being a matter of revenge and i want to talk to you about your vote being about america. so i think they were setting that up. i get the joke. if romney had used that word in the context of so
with washington and what could make it work better. we're back in democracy plaza and some of the stranger ways to predict who will win on tuesday. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ >>> a now a different way to predict the winner of the presidential race. you may heard of the red skins rule. when they win their last home game prior to a presidential election, that election is won by the party that won the popular vote in the previous election. when they lose the last home game, it is won by the party that lost the popular vote in the previous election. this rule is 18 for 18. it had an addendum to it because the one year it could have been wrong when they lost but president bush won re-election. but the popular vote. in 2008, the phillys won the world series, obama carried pennsylvania and he went on to win the election. in '96 the yankees won, clinton carried new york. tigers won, reagan carried mitch, you get the picture? we could keep going. you get to go all the way back to herbert hoover. the world series champs this year come from california. and one of the newest predictors is in college foot
a statement saying, that was accurate. now you saw that on the front page of "the washington post." no. i report for the number one english-language newspaper, the guardian, greatest last story about romney billionaires covered the entire front page of the newspaper and by last story about mr. romney and his billionaires was at the top of the nightly news for bbc television where i'm an investigative reporter. now i know that in case you don't know what investigative reporting is, it's not done here because it's a violation of the patriot act three which is why you haven't seen me on any of the local, the peacock or the foxhole or the eyewall, or even "msnbc" but some of you got that. mr. romney and his money. that is all right as governor romney himself would say. in america we like to celebrate success, and his success is nothing compared to his partners. three billionaires who operate hedge funds, partnered with romney on a takedown of the treasury in the auto bailout. three guys earned $4.2 billion from the u.s. treasury. you remember that from the debate, right? no one asks, no one i
. evan, your group is involved in maine, minnesota, maryland and washington. >> washington state. >> right. you have to raise a lot of money for these. this is not a grass roots -- i mean it's grass roots at a certain level but running a big campai campaign. >> it is grass roots. the reason we may succeed this year is because we have been knocking on doors, having conversations with neighbors. not just in the political moment but over years. it's persuasion over time that's helped people change their hearts and minds on the freedom to marry. to run a political campaign with the air wave war you have to wage. it does cost millions and millions of dollars. freedom to marry had to raise millions of dollars to channel into the states just to enable them to continue making the case to voters. >> i think you have to make an important point. ballot initiatives or not, what's going on is sustained citizen action. mobilization and that sort of thing. i think there's not enough of that. that is how you fight back. this is taking the form of ballot initiatives referendums. you can make head
campaign who is in the washington studio. >> before we get to the campaign , here is what the president promised about libya and here is what he has done. >> every piece of information we get as we got it we laid it out for the american people. >>chris: that was the president not answering a question about benghazi. did the president make a calculated decision to run out the clock until the election and not answer questions about libya? >> no. >>chris: why hasn't he answered? >> from the beginning and we have talked about this before, the president has said we want to get to the bottom of it and share it with the american people including with the former joint chiefs of staff who are reviewing the whole matter to get to the bottom of it not just to find out where things have gone wrong but how to politic it. they are serving in dangerous places and you cannot eliminate risk and that is what the president's goal is. >>chris: i understand the different agencies and that issue but it takes time. i will ask questions about the president's personal involvement that he could answer. the u.s.
